Deeper Life Church Pastor Kumuyi’s Son’ Wedding In Jamaica Sparks Controversy by agentakins: 10:07pm On Jun 23, 2013
Last weekend, John Kumuyi, the 2nd son of Deeper Life General Overseer, Pastor W.F Kumuyi married his longtime fiancee, Love Odih in Jamaica.

The stylish wedding ceremony that was graced by top Deeper Life Dignitaries from all over the world was success.

The glamourous wedding ceremony happened to be one of its kind in the highly indoctrinated church.

As we are all aware that the church’s doctrine forbids women wearing flash wedding gowns, jewelries, and makeup on their wedding day.

But for Love Odih, the daughter of Deeper Life’s national overseer in Jamaica, the reverse is the case.

On her wedding day, Love appeared beautiful with her earrings, sexy wedding dress, eyelashes and makeup.

This has sparked serious anger amongst concerned deeper lifers and outsiders who think this is a bit contrary to the church’s doctrine.

Below are few comments on this controversial topic;

Pastor W.F.kumuyi is not to blame for this worldliness in Jamaican branch of the church.The church has a hierarchy and it is expected that the national overseer of jamaican church should maintain godly standard and not to yield to john and his daughter in their craving for the world even though it involves pastor’s children! What pastor Kumuyi expected to see as visitor during the wedding ceremony is godliness of the arrangement and not the contrary! But as a man of God who is always controlled by God’s spirit,he may not react immediately.But definitely he may not be in tune with the whole exercise judging frm the countenance in the picture.We know our pastor through his undiluted preaching and life.He is really an example to any deeperlifer that care to make heaven at last! But we don’t know the national overseer of Jamaican church under whose watch the church of God is being ridiculed.If John & love and bride’s parents decided to allow worldliness in their wedding ,then it is up to them! God will judge even if wedding of pastors’ children does not glorify Him.Brethren, focus your attention on God,pray for our pastor Kumuyi and the church.I see the whole thing to be an attack on the church through those allowed themselves as tool of worldliness .- John A

Pst kumuyi shud trash these in the coming crusade to the world let us know the stand of the church.JOHN!!! U are a disgrace to Christ ur Dad and the church,u might be on ur way to HELL FIRE but i pray u come 2 track.shame to you and ur so called wife.i pray dat ur bro don’t break our heart as u did nd i pray dat Pst kumuyi will mis his mansion in Heaven because of u.once again SHAME!SHAME!!SHAME! – Ezra

Going to heaven is a personal conviction,don’t let the devil decive you by what so ever.keep looking unto jesus…happy married life to bro.john and love kumuyi. – Joyous joe

All that want to happen has happen many are called but few are chosen,anyone with the spirit of God will always stand for the truth what is bad is bad how will john’s father feel? what ever we got to do on this earth let us remember that the owner of your life is watching you.the standards of DLCM still remain the same. Notting change,I pray I will not be a stumbling blood to anyone . – Esthe

Heaven is real and hell is real,please dont wait to get there before u believe on God,s standard.Jesus wants us to be natural the way He created us,for what shall it profit a man if he gained the whole world and loose his soul.Forget about who does what and think about ur own soul.Jesus is longer coming soon but NOW.Believers be warned!- Esthe

As Christians we need 2 b careful wit our tongue because we ar goin 2 give account one day .I believe in moderation in all things, besides, in essentials let there b unity and in non essentials let the liberty, d coming of our Lord is at hand. – oludimu

I will say (1) This distraction is important and a notable one. (2) Deeper Life as a church actually wants its members to make heaven. That is the utmost desire of Pastor Kumuyi and the pastor’s that work with him. (3) Sometimes the call of God and His demand for your time may be so demanding that you rarely have time to even buy or watch TV, in fact seeing someone having time to watch Tv you might almost think he or she is not a serious christian. God’s call and demand for different people may differ but we should be wise to know when it is for specific individuals and so not to be generalized. (4) Do not make sinning too cheap. Many have sinned by their comment, do not do it. Any statement not made in love is in error. I Love pastor Kumuyi and his labor of love will not be in vain in Jesus name. Amen – Chike

Now I understand why Daddy used to refer to Deeper Life members as Hyprocites… They are as worst as the devil. How can you be preaching against people putting on earrings and make up and on ur own wedding Day ur son allowed his bride to make up. When my sister was getting married, I asked her if she will be putting on earrings, but she said No, we are not Deeper life member but we follow the doctrine of the bible. I have never put on earring and I have never condemned those who put them on,….. This is just pure nonsense. A family friend attending deeper life church destroyed their Television because it was called the box of Satan by their G.O Kumuyi, months later, they went to Kumuyi’s house and they found put that the man actually uses Television. What are we saying. –Olayemi

BEWARE AND JUDGE NOT! GOD SEES THE INTENT OF EVERY HEART. DONT FORGET THEY ARE NOT IN NIGERIA. WHAT IS BRIDE WEAR IS MODERATE. REMEMBER, EVERY MAN WILL ACCOUNT FOR EVERY IDLE WORDS THAT HE SAID. LET’S WAIT FOR THE MAN OF GOD TO CLEAR THE AIR. I AM SURE MOST OF THESE POLICY ABOUT MARRIAGE IS INVENTED BY THE MARRIAGE COMMITTEE AND NOT THE PASTOR. EVEN MOST OF THE PROBLEMS WE ARE SUBJECTED TO DURING OUR ENCOUNTER WITH THE MARRIAGE COMMITTEE, THE PASTOR MAY NOT BE AWARE OF IT. IMAGINE IF YOU ARE ALSO A LEADER, I BELIEVE IT IS ONLY WHAT YOU ARE TOLD BY YOUR LEADER THAT YOU WILL FOLLOW. DONT LET THIS DISTRACT YOUR ATTENTION, JESUS IS COMING VERY SOON. FOR YOUR INFORMATION, PASTOR KUMUYI WILL MAKE IT BECAUSE IF WE ASK HIM HE WILL DEFEND ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD. WATCH YOUR OWN LIFES REMEMBER, THE LORD IS AT HAND… –Ogundiran

funkede1: As a friend of the couple, I can’t keep silent anymore. This is the actual picture of what the bride looked like. The rest have been lies to destroy the lives of the new couple and may you all be forgiven for the damage you caused the church of God and the new couple. As someone that attended the wedding, the pictures arousing such controversy looks nothing like the bride on her wedding day.


No white-looking makeup or blush
No earring
No lipstick
No fake eye lash
No mascara
No relaxed hair (blow drier & flat iron can do that! by the way, her hair is that long)
No colored eyebrow
No eye shadow
No ring on finger

You compare earlier pictures of a deeper life bride with a turban covered hair. In the Caribbean generally, the thick turban covering is associated with a satanic worship church. Can you imagine? No!! Ignorance is bliss. Is that what you want the new couple subjected to because of your lack of understanding? A joining that appears to be like under Satan because of hair covering as you understand it in your side of the world? God forbid!
If you want to accuse the bride of the gown, is it showing any body parts? I thought this was the idea of modesty. Let not thy unclothedness be discovered.. Love is also not John's lover/heartthrob/girlfriend or any other careless language, these two were brought together led of The Lord though from thousand of miles apart and I'm sure they went through the deeper life church marriage committee process from their countries.

I hope you feel guilty enough to stop all the lies and great damage you have caused a new couple trying to begin a life together hard school of marriage, and added to that has to live with scrutiny on a public scale, all influenced by lies and doctored images from the haters.. Let each man run their own Christian race, not with eye service or an envious mind.

Congrats to the new couple and may God soothe the irreparable damage caused by online social media
P.s there are so many other good things online about Love Odih, not just some fabricated and baseless scandal

im happy to see this. Cos ive been wondering about the "over-zealous" attitude of this church since the 90s during the "satan's box"(tv etc) and the now known fact that the same tv is now used for public views of their crusades. Obviously, the members have become more "holy"than the G. O. Praise the lord.grin
Pity.angry

The bottom line is that churches should not be built around individuals rather around christ. So no matter haw spiritual one man churches might look I don't think I can be part of them.

BE MINDFUL OF ETERNITY

But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. (Matthew 12:36 KJV)

But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters. (1 Peter 4:15 KJV)
- Ibikunle Farajimakin
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN!
What is this ‘posting’ and ‘sharing’ of John’s wedding pictures all about? To you who either posted or shared, what was your motive? What message were you trying to pass across. Is that your own message of the cross? Is that the mandate that Christ gave you? A lot of tracts bearing the message of salvation are lying all about with no one to post on FB. So also are posters and handbills for church programmes. Only a few post these. But you have all the time in the world to post pictures and pass unguarded comments. What has caused others serious heartbreak is what you are busy jesting about. Until now I never knew that John was and is the Messiah of many (or why would he suddenly become the object of both national and international discussion); neither did I know that he was the author and finisher of the faith of a lot of professing believers.

Now you point accusing fingers and spite the message of the man of God on worldliness. While you are busy focusing on John, your own spirituality is depreciating by the seconds... Why will you go to hell because of another man’s mistake. Don’t you think that will be your greatest undoing? Friend, away with all the frivolities, carnalities and sensualities on FB. If your page is not promoting Christ and extending the frontiers of His coming kingdom, you had better deactivate it. Resign from the league of shallow-minded critics and enrol in the school of prayer. If you feel you don’t need prayers, then pray for others. There are millions of people in the world who need prayers, myself inclusive. Christ will soon come. If he meets you gossiping and backbiting, I’m sure He will not smile and say “well done, thou good and faithful servant.” Of course, there is freedom of speech but it is not freedom to run off at the mouth. Stay at your duty post (that is, if you have one) and stop meddling in other men’s affair. If you can’t help to ameliorate the matter, then don’t worsen it. And for you whose exalted position is that of gossiping, backbiting and slandering, and who don’t have any work to do for Christ, I urge you to find one and do it faithfully.
Then for you who are yet to marry, we will wait till your wedding day to see the ‘wonders’ you will perform. I’m sure you will like to make headlines, not only in the best and widely-read newspapers here on earth but also in hell!
Praying or gossiping? Rewards sure abound for both, but in different places.
A word, they say, is enough for the wise. (Beckie Gabriel)

i see nothing wrong with the wedding gown, it is very modest. all u people concerned about the undeeper life of the gown, pls let the new couple be. nobody can be more spiritual than the Holy Spirit stop being a spiritometre over other people's life and ask the Holy Spirit to help you with your life. spiritual is not all abt the dressing, bt the dressing is part to it as you have to dress modest, because spiritual beauty is inside out and nt outside in. so pls lets focus on important things and stop rooting out other people's life.
